|Eight of the Ten|
It was raining when we got out of the cars. Someone said that if it is raining at 10 0' clock it will rain for the rest of the day. Fortunately this weather forecasting tale was not 100% fool proof. The rain soon stopped and did not return.
At the first stop just a few hundred yards along the road we got a good view of the river and were able to see a few of the specialist riverine birds.
As we carried on a Buzzard flew overhead taking some newly found road kill home.
Not long after we left the road and followed the path through woodland and by some paddocks. Here we found Willow Warbler, Coal Tit, Blackcap, Treecreeper, Tree Pipit, Goldcrest and other woodland species. Many of the birds were newly fledged young. Others seemed to be tending nests nearby. The breeding season was in full swing.
